Following the release of his debut album ‘Many Fish To Fry’ and accompanying live DVD, the supremely talented and charismatic Jake Morley sold out London’s Jazz Café as part of HMV’s Next Big Thing and followed it up with a 15-date headline UK tour, a full schedule of summer festivals, his first Irish tour and a run of gigs in France and Canada. National radio love has come from Dermot O’Leary, Janice Long and Jo Whiley at Radio 2, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson at 6Music and more than 40 UK local radio stations. 2016 sees the release of his highly anticipated follow-up album, ‘The Manual’, which reveals a maturing of his writing whilst still maintaining the gift of turning everyday happenings into memorable songs.
